IVERNIS (Ἰουερνίς), mentioned by Ptolemy (2.2.10) as one of the inland towns of Ireland, the others being Rhigia, Rhaeba, Laberus, Macolicum, another Rhaeba, Dunum. Of these, Dunum has been identified with Down, and Macolicum with Mallow, on the strength of the names. Laberus, on similar but less satisfactory ground, == Kil-lair in West Meath. Ivernus is identified by O´Connor with Dun-keron, on the Kenmare river; but the grounds on which this has been done are unstated.
